More than three decades after donning the iconic hockey mask in Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives, C.J. Graham is returning to Crystal Lake in the upcoming feature length fan film, Friday the 13th: Vengeance. This time, though, he’s not playing Jason—he’s playing his father, Elias Voorhees.
Directed by Jeremy Brown., Friday the 13th: Vengeance is an unofficial 30-years-later sequel to Part VI. The film sees Elias Voorhees returning to the notorious Camp Blood, only for a slew of murders to follow. After Tommy Jarvis goes missing, his daughter, Angelica, sets out to find him—and destroy his old nemesis, Jason, in the process.
The project was funded on Kickstarter and is currently in post-production. It will feature music by Harry Manfredini, who scored the original series. Tom McLoughlin, the director of Part VI, served as a consultant on the film.
